I wouldn't necessarily recommend paying down your principle early since your interest rate will be lower in almost all cases than the percentage of return you can expect by investing the money. I realize that seems like an odd point to make with the market where it is right now, but long term, you should expect 7-8% yearly gains. Maybe hold that money until the fall for now.

What are the best channels to find games? I particularly enjoy the abridged games.

12 one hundred dollar handshakes for carefully selected croots! 

(It's a joke)

Comment 22 Mar 2020

Exactly what I was thinking! This thread is way worse and less entertaining than the recruiting threads. Who has time to read those long threads? Uh.....everyone? It’s like 75 posts a day.

Sad to hear. I've been subscribed to the text only version for years. 

Comment 20 Mar 2020

We should assume that our actual cases are AT LEAST ten to twenty times higher than what we currently know about. I'm worried that numbers coming in may start to shock and alarm people over the next few weeks, but we need to make sure that is balanced with the understanding that higher numbers are due to more testing, not an indictment of our current distancing policies or a reason to believe that the efforts have been fruitless.

People are not literally locked down, my friend. You can go pick up food, go to the store, go out for a walk, go for a drive.

We are just buying time for hospitals to increase capacity and more ventilators to be produced. Then we unleash everyone and let the chips fall where they may. As crass as it sounds, we aren’t going to just pause the economy for a year.

And how would that starving woman even know you had a stash? It’s just an incredibly silly and paranoid way to think. 

Comment 19 Mar 2020

Don’t think the downvotes are warranted, it’s a fair concern. Someone with mental health issues has decided to continue his college basketball career, just not at Ohio State. Perhaps he wants to be closer to home and if that’s where he transfers, it’s for sure less concerning. I’m not bashing the coaches or accusing them of anything, it just doesn’t look great on the surface in this particular situation.

I’m getting very nervous about the upcoming decision we have to make as a country. The only way to prevent the spread of this is to continue what we’re doing until the vaccine is ready. Which is 18 months away. 
 

What will the world economy look like if the US is practically under lockdown for over a year? How long will that take to recover from and how do we even manage that in the meantime? Do we just buy time for a few months to ramp up production of ventilators and hospital capacity and then go back to normal accepting the fact that 1 to 1.5 million (mostly over age 70) Americans will die? 
 

There is always the possibility this virus mutates and becomes less deadly. Let’s hope for that, but what I described above is unfortunately what the situation looks like as we sit here today.

Ryan Day is doing even better than we could have imagined, but let’s never forget to recognize the incredible job Mark Pantoni does. Other than Day, he is the most important person associated with our football program. Best in the country at his job and will be impossible to replace, so I hope we never have to.

There is no need to load up. Our food supply chain is completely intact and people aren’t suddenly going to eat more. The essentials aren’t going away, we just need to separate from each other for a bit. There are no shortages and it is important that people understand that and do not panic.

I’m thrilled with any two of the three RBs, but I really want Edwards the most. Taking him out of Michigan would be such a huge recruiting victory. Keep depriving them of oxygen and hope. 
 

I’m having a weird reaction of euphoria mixed with stress at how quickly things are filling up.

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths Nevada will go in his quest to be an incredibly terrible human being. The hero worship all those years on Scout was so gross. Too many people are such poor judges of character.
